Re: vasovagal pre-syncope

From: maggie


Jen, wonder if it's the other way around. I've read some things that indicate that the mechanisms for the syncope (like the blood pressure drop or the heart rate changes) can cause nausea. I get very sick to my stomach too. That sort of makes sense in that people (esp women) who are having a heart attack often will have nausea. I"m not sure WHY though.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
